I am writing the review after my second time reading this since I didn't write one the first time around. In fact, I didn't even have this GoodReads account at the time. This was a pre-50 Shades title for me.I had always been curious about Domestic Discipline - never had any personal experience with it but I had read a few of the blogs where people talked about how they made it work. I found this a fascinating story about how two people are working to make it work.I really admired the way Neely was able to move on after her marriage failed and restart her life. And her willingness to put herself in Caine's hands.Caine - I really liked him at first but some of his decisions confused me. He is actually one of the Domiant-types that I use to rate others against. But maybe it is being more experienced in the genre a year later, he does come across as a bit of a jerk at times so I understand why some of the other reviewers were down on him.I really think of this as the book for someone who wants to learn more about Domestic Discipline to read first. If they don't run screaming out of the room, there are other directions to go after that.
